    yeah, sorry, wasn't paying attention. all the g4 talk lately has put
    me in that mode. usually it's due to chaining USB devices, as Ryan
    pointed out. Also, i've noticed sometimes i've only gotten the
    restore to work with "Erase Destination" checked, and other times
    unchecked. So i'd try both. <br>

                  <div>I have a copy of OSX Snow Lepoard that I'm trying
                    to install off of a thumb drive, as my optical is

                  <div>but having issues- it won't install. If I hold
                    alt while booting, it doesn't show up as a bootable
                    drive, if I select the image off the thumbdrive and
                    try to run it, it asks to restart and then goes back
